Our project to make free prosthetic hands for orphans in Haiti and any needy child in the world. We teach students to make 3D parts and assemble prosthetic hands, under the certification of the engineering charity e-NABLE. We arrange for them to be distributed free to those in need anywhere in the world.
David Tamen, our VP of Engineering, is certified by e-NABLE to make the Unlimbited Phoenix Hand. This is a three-part prosthesis that can provide mobility and allow two-handed tasks for a child missing a limb up to an elbow stump.
Helping Hands MB aims to provide these children with hope and kindness. A brightly colored prosthetic to mimic that of a superhero can help a child adjust to the idea of using a prosthetic to help them lead a meaningful life, and most importantly know that they are loved.
Our partnership is with Food For The Poor, a charity funded by kindhearted donors, that provides food and medical supplies to poverty-stricken areas in Haiti, Jamaica, and throughout Central America. Helping Hands MB prosthetics will be fitted to children at the Prosthetic Clinic at Bernard Mevs Hospital in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
